Usability Problem: Make search for users using the @mention feature a more obvious affordance
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Problem: When usability testers were asked to add @-mention a username that had not previous been involved in the conversation, they struggled to use the tool to search for usernames. Where struggled here means that they didn't use the search functionality or used the search functionality but didn't scroll down to the correct username after search or expected to be able to autocomplete the username addition.

Proposed Solution: TBD

Seems challenging, because we're at a fairly industry-standard functionality for the tool. (i.e. it works about how, say, twitter's or phabricator's equivalents do.) The autocomplete also works about the same way as those -- pressing space moves on, pressing tab completes.
